The Best of Both Worlds: New OS4 beta and MOS 1.5 beta in Finland

TAMPERE, FINLAND - September 23st, 2004 - Why guess, listen to rumours, compare months old public releases and continue speculating online?

Encouraged by the recent technological advances within the extended Amiga community, the Finnish Amiga Users Group is once again excited to showcase the latest progress. Colour blind since its inception, the Finnish Amiga Users Group welcomes everyone - and attendance is free as usual. The time and place to be: 14 o'clock, Saturday 25.09.2004, Opetusravintola Eetvartin Kellarikabinetti, Sumeliuksenkatu 16, Tampere, Finland.

To me it looks like the version of MorphOS shown here was identical as shown at PUSH, but not as good demoed (no TCP/IP, 3D, etc).

http://www.morphos-news.de/index.php?lg=en&nid=764&si=1

I do not think this was the most current development version at all ...

There are no need to make bad programs just experiment whit hardware,
even whit an adapter you can do the same, and it most likely allot smarter, lets say you make design a bad pcb, and test the card on your new AmigaOne and break your COM ports what do you do then? if you use an external adapter on the other hand you only break the adapter and not a chip on your mainboard,

Short thoughts.. will watch a movie soon.

I didn't see any software run on AmigaOne except for DVPlayer and AmiPDF. I only saw icons, windows and AmigaOS preferences. Thats why the pics of OS4 are a bit dump and meaningless. Maybe I appeared there too late or something.

Petunia was not integrated... shame. As OS4b owner I'd be a bit worried at this point when the update is already in test and now it seems it's not in.
DMA was apparently enabled. The AmigaOne booted quite slowly, don't know why.
Resizing windows still causes flicker, like in Riihimäki last year.
OS4 didn't crash and seemed very stable, which was a big step from what I saw last year. In overall the OS is working just fine, but lacking software to demo.


MorphOS1.5b.

Some improvements.. was waiting a bit more, honestly. TCP/IP is integrated and can be found in Network-prefs. LOOOOOTS of hotkeys can be defined aswell.

Radeon 3d-support, I don't know of.. the Pegasos was running with Voodoo. Damn you Piru. Well it seemed to perform pretty well with the games and screenblankers.

Also some small but important improvements.. Shell is now MUI. Shutdown can be found and things like that.
Pleased to see MPlayer working now so that the onscreen-texts doesn't have doublebuffer-problem(=flickering text).

In general, both OS's worked as expected. MorphOS just have more software to run. OS4 is NOT ahead of MorphOS1.5 in any areas I noticed. But it is getting very close, and very fast. Should keep the MOS-lemmings motivated.. if not, you guys are screwed ;-)

Anyway.. I wasn't there the whole time so I hope to see more specific report. It can be that I missed something in presentations.

Off to me Ali .. till tomorrow.

It was demoed in Finland by Piru, one of the MorphOS developers. He said aside from Ambient it was almost totally the current developer version with some stuff as new as last night or so, I believe.

Beta testers use full debug output dumping that out on serial port 9600 8 N 1 is kind of slow,
you get quite speed up just setting 19200 8 N 1 in uboot,

Even on AmigaOS pre lots of debug output are dumped even if debug is set to none.

one more thing the network interface used at lest 3sec to init it self,
so I use this line "run <>nil: C:AddNetInterface >NIL: DEVS:NetInterfaces/~(#?.(info|off))"

Well I believe that except from latest ambient this might almost be most current. But MOS devs have also said on IRC that 1.5 update is "boring" (bad word I know) - meaning most changes are not direct visible [on screenshots?] but "under the hood". Later they also said next update may be too big to be calles 1.5 - it may be MAJOR update (2.0?). Was all the latest and was all really demoed?

It looked good anyway i think!

whit powerup + warpup support comming... ;-)

it's not AmigaOS40 final beta that is in testing it the new components in the update the update is just a stepping stone towards AmigaOS40 final full version, clearly there are a few bricks missing, this is way I say the things a say in the start of the tread, the product that where presented is not the product we are getting or we pre-ordered for,

I think there is more developers working on AmigaOS40 then MorphOS to try minimize the margin between them, the development costs of the OS is covered in the price of AmigaOne hardware, AmigaOS40 is moving quite fast,

The cost of developing the OS comes in to play when they sell the hardware,

* MorphOS started as an idea, whit only a few developers efficient developers,
time is spent efficient on development and over many years

* AmigaOS40 started whit lots of planing whit lots developers,
time is spent efficient planing (phase 1) and development (phase 2),

AmigaOS40 most likely costs more the MorphOS to develop,
or at least it has taken AmigaOS40 some time to break even,

Note: I did not attentd event myself..

So far I have not heard *ANY* 3rd-party apps been shown atop of OS4 on that demo-event (apparently is was just Boring-Plain OS4-preview install with some late patch'es)... I know this OS4 prerelase is quite new, but if it has any Backward compatibility they should spend time/effort to demonstrate it. IMHO it's an important feature as there aren't likely to be planty new Os4 native apps available on upcoming months.

For MorphOS.. That TCP-stack (and some other parts) is way too *LATE*... I have (like allmost all people) heard about problems aroung Genesi... But: NetStack was supposed to be there year ago and they still dont have Gui?

Indeed very little was shown, but at least a software rendered SDL game port was shown. It was much slowed though than the SDL games that were run hardware accelerated on MorphOS 1.5.

I think somebody asked this and the answer was that it was not supported yet.

Hi!

It was a nice show. I tried to look both of the demonstration but it was very hard because of the crowd :) Please, there must be a video projector next time.

Boogie/Gentle Eye had a pre-release (?) AOS 4 / A1 with Radeon 8500 to be tried.

Jontsa demoed G4@800MHz AmigaOne (perhaps with Radeon, can't remember). He demonstrated us at least the following:
UBoot, 2nd Level Loader, Early Startup, Workbench, Amidock, Multiview, AmiPDF, Audio Evolution, Mixer, Amplifier, DV Player (3 at the same time actually), Native P96, Native MUI, PC Task (!) AMP, some SDL games, RoadShow, IBrowse, A-Web (not the latest native though), Crisot's demo, Quake SW-rendered, RayRace, GUI prefs, Intuition features. I witnessed no Grim Reapers or crashes.

On MorphOS side, Jupp3 (I think?) demoed MorphOS 1.4 on his G4@1000MHz Pegasos with Radeon 3 3000 AGP. We saw games like Earth 2140, Knights & Merchants, some image processing software (was that fxPaint?), Transport Tycoon plus some Asteroids clone done with BlizBasic. Later on Piru jumped in with MorphOS 1.5 beta. Ambient was still version 1.4 I think.

He demoed Real-time preferences, Quake 2, Safe reset handler, boot menu, AminetRadio, SID player, AB3D II - TKG, screen savers, Task Manager and SDL games.

I think the show was worth visiting. Blame yourself for not being there ;)

This seems very strange. The point of an OS is to run programs. AOS4 will only be interesting to me when it runs more programs than Amithlon, especially major Amiga programs that do not run on Amithlon.

I'm just pointing out that this is not the beta, it the update for pre version,

The tread started out saying now we can finally compare beta vs beta,
and this is not really true, all the components show where beta tested,
if the update crashed then the update will be delayed until the problem
is fixd. :-/

so the update only contain final components to replace or
fill in for poor pre version components, like bug fixed radian drivers,
better 3com.driver etc, fixed ATA driver whit DMA, and few new
components,

Well, IMHO that is nitpicking. We saw a lot more of both systems than we had seen in public releases. We didn't see all of the latest stuff for sure (like Ambient 1.5 for MOS, and some things for OS4 like JIT and 3D that are, I was told, not yet in full beta testing but still in the hands of the developers), but we did get a much more fair picture of the current progress than looking at the now months old public releases out there. We know this is not where the progress will end for MOS or OS4, but this is where they pretty much stand right now.

I think it was a good look at both of the systems, and fair and a nice atmosphere too. I see no reason in trying to downplay that.
